Over at Hickory-High, Seth Partnow broke down DeMarcus Cousins’ relative variance in production for #BoogieWeek. But to provide context for his point, he employs a much steadier Blake Griffin:
Griffin, on the other hand, aside from getting to the free throw line about 2.5 times per game less against the top defenses, is remarkably consistent regardless of opponent quality. The relative performance represents a massive point in Blake’s favor:
The Clippers are a team other teams prepare for. Blake is either the first or second name on the scouting report. Teams know what he wants and likes to do, and he still brings it.
